1916: A Cry for Independence
The Liam Neeson narrated documentary, 1916: The Irish Rebellion, screens March 31, 2016 at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center in the Leighton Concert Hall. It captures the events of an Easter Monday, “The Easter Rising,” a century ago that would rock the British Empire.
In this podcast, Ted Barron’s chat with Chris Fox, director of Notre Dame’s Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies and “1916” executive producer, covers that April day at a Dublin post office. Tune in to learn more about the legacy of the Irish rebellion, the docu’s “making of,” and the project’s significance to the global remembrance of The Rising’s 100th anniversary.
